VINCENT OF LERINS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE
Author: Thomas G Guarino
Softcover - 192pp The theology of Vincent of Lerins is often reduced to a memorable slogan: "We hold that faith which has been belived everywhere, always, and by everyone." Thomas Guarino argues that this "Vincentian canon" has frequently been taken out of context. This Catholic book introduces Vincent's thought and its reception in Christian history, exploring Vincent's creative and innovative understanding of the development of doctrine and showing how it informed the thought of John Henry Newman. The author contends that Vincent's theology contributes significantly to theology and ecumenism in the twenty-first century. Add to the cart or wish list above.
